Right now we have this light hanging over our table.
It’s not centered and it really doesn’t match the style of our house. I have no idea why it was hung where it was. It’s not centered with anything. I received some gift cards for Lowe’s for Christmas and I decided that I’d like to get some new lights for over the table because it’s bugged me for a long time that the light is not centered. I sifted through thousands of choices and J pointed to one and said “that’s the one”. At first I wasn’t completely sold on it because it seemed like a pretty bold choice, but the more I looked at other lights, the more I kept coming back to it. He was right and I decided that it was perfect. Sadly, though, I waited too long and when I decided to order them, they were discontinued on the Lowe’s website. They still offered them in white, but I didn’t want white. Plus, they had been around $76.00 before and the white ones had gone up to $102.19 when I went back to order them, which was well-above the $150.00 budget we had set.
I searched and searched, but couldn’t find them anywhere. They are, in fact, discontinued by the manufacturer. I finally searched on ebay for “red pendant lights” and found a place that had four. (There are still two available.) I bought two for $157.00 total. I couldn’t use the Lowe’s gift card, though, so I used some of the funds we had in house repair fund we started in January and put the Lowe’s cards in the house fund. I know it’s not really a “repair”, but I didn’t go into debt to buy them, so it works for me. Plus, J and I are in perfect agreement on them and when I saw them, I had to jump on the chance to buy them since I didn’t know if I would ever have the chance again.
We’re going to hang them, something like this.
So are you ready to see them? We decided on these.
I can’t wait until we get them hung. I think they’re going to look awesome. We were both giddy when they arrived. I’ll definitely post pictures when they’re finally up.
So what have you been up to lately? Share!
